“They explained that they wanted to watch football matches on Sky TV…”
At around 6.30 am on 8 February a group of about twenty asylum seekers staged a protest outside the asylum centre where they lived in Cas di Roncolevà, a few kilometres from Castelbelforte. One of them held up a sign saying “We don’t want Anastasia” (the manager of the asylum centre). They also used objects that were lying around to block access to the asylum compound, preventing a female worker from entering. When an employee of the electrical company tried to enter, they manhandled him.
Most of the protesters went back in at around 11, only a few remaining outside.
Islao Petrarca., director of the Versoprobo cooperative which manages the asylum centre, said: “We provide what we need to provide; in some cases also more. But nothing superfluous. We have no intention of satisfying childish requests.”
This is truly shameful — on the part of the Italians.
These poor refugees were fleeing from the bad service provided by C Tier cable providers in their home countries — and now they need to suffer doubly by not getting Sky TV?
Access to Sky TV is basic human right you fascists!
